Outstanding...but at the same time...meh.,
This review is from: Iron Man 2 (Mass Market Paperback)
Well, it was bound to be brilliant, but for those of you who read the first, you can immediately tell it's written by a different author. There's a lot more funny than the first one and to me it reads more like a fanfic than the first one did. Still pretty awesome though. However, because of how it was written, it did make me sort of have a teensy bit less enthusiasm about the film. This could be because I read the first one after I watched the film, but who knows. It does promise to be an awesome film though, and Pepperony fans, wait for the last paragraph of page 291, and make sure there's no one around to get their ears blown out.
What I loved about it was there was a LOT more in-depth stuff about Tony's past, with his father. And the relationship between Tony and Rhodey since "I am Iron Man."
All in all, I'd give this a 9/10, purely because of the writing style being so, SO different to Peter David. Gotta say though, when it's funny, it's hilarious.
